aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa really speaks to me.

By the way, Alibaba Cloud are the only company that have a "free" (gratis) tier service that matches Cloudflare's.

It's basically down to which hosting provider is out of your jurisdiction at that point.

@MatejLach Exactly. The other strange thing are softwares like GPG, LUKS, etc. They're international, and I really don't think they're going to implement backdoors because the Alabama senate had to wait a month to unlock a petty thief's iPhone. The regulation isn't even enforceable.

Not to mention that if you're really doing something so illegal that the FBI would need to get involved, I'm sure you don't mind risking the extra few years for illegal encryption.

Just a reminder that #Livestreaming in #Peertube would be a very cool thing™ and needs your support over at:

(we're already more than 1/2 way there!)

Update on encryption backdoors in the US: The "E.A.R.N. I.T" act has been modified so that instead of federally mandated backdoors, it is done on a state-by-state basis.

Assuming it passes with this provision, and you live in the US, please be ready to go to state senate and congress meetings to explain to your legislators why mandated backdoors are a horrible idea. I'm considering writing out some talking points to use as a basis for such a thing.

I know XPrivacy can do this (and a lot more, too), but you need XPosed for it, which is a fickle beast...

A lot of our customers use WordPress to manage their websites, and to date I don't think I've seen a single one use the same page editor as another.

Which says a lot for two reasons:

1) Literally no one is using vanilla WordPress to create their websites for some reason (spoiler: it's because its terrible).

2) There's no industry standard toolset for creating websites with WordPress. Just a bunch of disparate, patchwork plug-ins all trying to accomplish the same thing, with varying degrees of success, that lose support and fade away in 2-4 years time.

It's incredible to me how many proprietary mobile flashlight programs exist and how much of them will steal any and all data they can get their hands on.

I despite Apple and rarely give them credit for anything, but mobile clipboard monitoring is something that's actually brilliant.

It lets normal people know that their bank's mobile app is spying on them.

Is there an equivalent for rooted Android?

@wgahnagl I didn't become a Free Software supporter until I accidentally learned about it through a manual that I was only reading because I was angry I couldn't read a textbook.

@wgahnagl That's fair. I used GNU/Linux off and on for years before I really got into Free Software. I was more of on "open source" supporter (make the code better, that kind of thing). I was running some GNU/Linux distro designed for Chromebooks on my school's Chromebook in 8th grade and couldn't get a flash based textbook to work. I ended up figuring out how to rip the textbook, wrote a script to do it, and somewhere in there I was reading bash documentation and found a link to gnu.org.

@wgahnagl Holy hell. I learned to program when I was 9 because my brother was just insistent on teaching me how to write Hello World in C.

The reason I got into Free Software was actually because I was very pissed about a flash-based textbook though.

@wgahnagl Also let them know how it goes so they can list it as compatible or fix any issues it may have.

@wgahnagl Maybe! I haven't actually tried it. I was never a neopets kids unfortunately. If you want to try it let me know how it goes :0
